Hi.
Do you think that GWT (as it is now 1.4) still has missing features?
If yes, what is your wish list?

Hi John,

Maybe I'm a bit of a luddite, but I haven't struggled too much with just the 1.4 syntax.

Allowing objects to implement the Serializable interface (as opposed to the GWT specific IsSerializable interface) was a big plus for me, so would have been on my list if you had asked pre GWT 1.4 RC1.

The only things I am missing just now are for it to "sexed" up a little, with some sliders (we show how to write one in the book) and effects, and I guess the ability to natively add more listener objects to the document.

Do you have any views on what might be missing?

//Adam

At the top of my wish list is built-in effects support, similar to Scriptaculous.

The benefit of native GWT effects over Scriptaculous is that the GWT compiler can optimize the size and to provide the same functionality with smaller JS files.

There are already a couple of draft implementations floating around, including one from Adam.

I don't have a wish list as I'm a new comer to GWT (I don't know the in and outs).
But I would like to see extra components from Google like, hmmm let me think...
Calendar, RSS reader, autocompleter, editable tables ...
And Scriptaculous like effects are great too
